2015 Proform Treadmill Reviews:
The Proform 9000 is the top model in their Pro Series – runner-friendly treadmills built to more commercial grade standards.
For example the 9000 treadmill gives you a monster 4.25 HP motor, an extra long 60 inch belt and 38 built-in workouts.
The new 2015 model also adds an integrated tablet holder so you can watch shows or movies as you walk. You also get a large 10 inch full-color web browser to surf the net or read your emails while working out.
And for added crosstraining, there’s up to 15% incline and 3% decline as well.
The 7500 is the next model down under the Pro 9000. You still get the decline and tablet holder.
But the web browser is smaller and the motor is not as strong.
The 7500 also comes iFit LIVE so you can download new workouts every day and map out new trails to run with Googlemaps.
It also gives you a free wireless heart rate monitor included to track and stay in your target fat-burning zone.
The Pro 2000 is a more affordable scaled-down version of the Pro 9000 above. You don’t get the full color web-browser but you do get a large, backlit-console and a decent 3.5 HP motor.
The Pro 2000 also comes iFit LIVE compatible and you also get incline and even 3% decline to add some extra challenge to your workouts.
The Proform 995C is a popular starter unit that received several “Best Buy” awards a few years ago. The main benefit of this treadmill is that it feels extremely sturdy and heavy for a starter treadmill.
You also get some entertainment options too like iFit LIVE compatibility, iPod dock and 30 built-in workouts. And the Proshox cushioning helps to reduce impact on your joints by up to 28% percent (vs road running).
So while it’s not a commercial-grade machine, it’s a solid contender in the $1000 price range.
The Proform Performance 400 treadmill is one of Proform’s most affordable motorized treadmills.
While it’s fairly basic and bare bones you still get all the essentials you need like a decent 2.5 HP motor, 10% incline, several built in workout programs and heart rate sensors.
While it’s light on the entertainment options there is an iPod dock with speakers and a console fan to keep you cool. If you’re on a budget and want a simple, basic treadmill for a good name, the 400 is worth considering
The next step up from the Proform 400 is the 600 model, giving you a much nicer console, stronger motor and longer belt.
While still fairly basic, this treadmill does give you a bit more including a higher 12 MPH speed limit, 12% incline and the iFit LIVE option (module not included).
It’s been around for a couple of years, which is a testament to it’s popularity. If you’re looking for a solid, basic treadmill for a fantastic price, the Performance 600 is a great option.
Looking for something completely different? The Proform 1495 comes with a full-color, touch-screen web browser built into the console. So you can surf the net while you walk and read emails or catch up on business news.
Along with a rock-solid motor and high stability, this treadmill is popular with runners and walkers alike. Another plus? Proform has added a 3% decline as well as a 15% incline for even more workout challenge.
Plus you also get iFit LIVE built-in so there’s no module to buy. You can download new workouts from Jillian Michaels or track your fitness progress online.
If you’re looking for more of a luxury treadmill this is one to consider.
Desk treadmills are becoming more and more popular – so Proform recently introduced their thinline desk treadmill – which combines a treadmill with a desk you can work on while you walk.
Unlike other desk treadmills you can use this model as both a regular treadmill – or flip the console down to use it as a flat desk, very cool. You can also fold up the treadmill, pull over a chair and just work on the desk part of it.
So this is a great addition to a home office. Another bonus? iFit LIVE and incline/decline to add some challenge to your workouts. Warning, this one sells out very quickly.
The Boston Marathon treadmill is a specialized treadmill/incline trainer made especially for marathon training and “serious” running. It gives you inclines of up to 20% and a decline of 6%.
The incline/decline integrates with the iFit LIVE to help you watch the Boston Marathon on your screen and incline/decline with the actual terrain.
You also get a cadence coach built into the Boston Marathon training videos.
